    The place smells of incense and hinoki. There is art everywhere. The bath was relaxing and usually private. Absolutely wonderful!

    The Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu is very well located right in the heart of Asakusa, next to the Senso-Ji. It was a very pleasant stay. I really enjoyed a traditional Japanese inn. My only regret is that my stay there was to short before leaving Japan....

    The location is a mere stone's throw from Kaminarimon and Asakusa temple. That was a surprise as I selected this property only to be near Asakusa station. The room was as you would expect: tatami mats, futon, ground seats and low table. The top...
